Blackbay 58 925 vs Omega CK2913

Met a fellow watch lover who was kind enough to let me take pictures of his Omega CK2913 re edition.
The Omega is a special edition and retails new for £6290.00  about twice the price of the BB58 925.
Whilst the Omega is very nice, on handling both watches I must say I prefer my BB58 925, the bezel feels so much more tactile and give a much more satisfying sound when moved. Although there may be  a lot more to look on the CK2913, the BB58  looks a lot more classy and feels a lot more robust.
It made me appreciate the value for money proposition the Tudor is.

I haven’t handled either but hav admired the 1957 edition since it came out. No doubting the value proposition of the 925 over it so I’d have to really want the Omega to justify the extra cost. Both very handsome pieces.

Agreed, watches are very subjective.

This one is probably my favourite Omega full stop.

BB58 again.  Way too much patina colors on the Omega for me.

It's faux patina.

So, considered both, and ended up purchasing the Omega. I love it. I'm certain that the BB58 Silver is a great watch as well, but for me, the Omega was worth the price (I got it for $6000ish USD). With it, I got: 2 additional straps, a great bracelet (with on the fly micro adjustment), a METAS certified movement that runs about (0.5 sec/day fast) and needs servicing every 8-10 years (worst case).
